Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn Are Adult Fugitives in ‘Band of Robbers’

You may know Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn as teenage troublemakers from Mark Twain’s novels, but the film Band of Robbers brings those characters into adulthood in this modern-day sequel.

Now available to stream for free on Reveel, Band of Robbers combines being a heist movie with a heavy dose of nostalgia.

Filmmaking brothers Adam and Aaron Nee, best known for their recent film The Lost City, wrote and directed Band of Robbers to be a refreshing twist on Mark Twain’s story. The film takes the iconic characters from the Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn novels and re-imagines them as adults in the current day.

The story is about petty criminal Huck Finn who hopes to leave his criminal life behind when he is released from prison, but his lifelong friend, and corrupt cop, Tom Sawyer, has other plans to find the hidden treasure that has eluded them since childhood.

Initially, Adam got the idea for Band of Robbers after auditioning for a movie adaptation of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Adam was 21yrs old auditioning for the role of Huck, a 13-year-old kid. He was laughed out of the audition but the idea of an adult Huckleberry Finn sparked his interest and he ran with it to create Band of Robbers.

“Probably the biggest thing is just how much there is in those novels that’s precious to us and that we wanted to hold onto and put into a 90-minute movie. The challenge was finding that balance with pulling out the core essential things that we really valued in Mark Twain’s work and putting it together into something that stands on its own.” – Aaron Nee

The star-studded cast includes Adam Nee as Tom Sawyer, Kyle Gallner as Huckleberry Finn, Matthew Gray Gubler as Joe Harper, Hannibal Buress as Ben Rogers, Melissa Benoist as Becky Thatcher, Eric Christian Olsen as Sid Sawyer, and Stephen Lang as Injun Joe.

Band of Robbers was released in 2015 and received many reviews comparing it to a Wes Anderson or Coen Brothers comedy. The comedy, acting performances, and unique premise are highly praised by audiences and critics alike.

Band of Robbers is available to watch anytime, anywhere for free on Reveel.

Grab some popcorn, a tissue box, and a friend to lean on because this new feature film on Reveel is guaranteed to have you feeling all sorts of emotions. Reveel is now streaming the romantic and heart-wrenching drama After The Rain.

Starring Daniel Bonjour and Jelly Howie, After The Rain is about the mental and emotional trials of a young man suffering from terminal cancer and the loved one he will ultimately leave behind. The dynamics of love earned, life to be lived, and dreams shattered are explored as the strength of a few are tested in a very real story about letting go.

Ryan James Russell wrote After The Rain and was inspired to create it after surviving his battle with cancer. The film is a poignant and realistic portrayal of what it’s like not just to suffer from a terminal illness, but also how your loved ones suffer as well.

“In making this movie we wanted to show how cancer affects everyone not just directly, but indirectly. However we could, we wanted to convey a simple and beautiful message in a sometimes cruel world.” – Daniel Bonjour, Director and Actor

After The Rain was initially released in 2016 and has a cast that includes Daniel Bonjour, Jelly Howie, Catherine Hicks, Ida Anderson, and Potsch Boyd. The film was created on a shoestring budget but still managed to rack up awards at various film festivals such as Dances With Films, Buffalo Niagara Film Festival, and Action on Film Festival. Daniel Bonjour has managed to create a film that tells an honest story about love, loss, and life.

After The Rain is available to watch for free right now on Reveel.

‘The Negotiators’ Features The Champion Barefoot Water Skier Turned Real Estate Agent

Keith St. Onge is a 14-time world and 19-time national champion barefoot water skier. He has dominated as a barefoot water skiing athlete for over 15 years and in 2018, he decided to retire from the sport. Keith now turns his attention to the real estate industry and in quick time became a top-performing real estate agent in his market.

How did Keith St. Onge go from dominating as an athlete to dominating as a real estate professional? That’s exactly the question The Negotiators TV series addresses in their two-part episode featuring Keith St. Onge.

The Negotiators is a real estate reality show created by Reveel, a streaming service for independent filmmakers, to highlight the real estate agents that are proven to go above and beyond for their clients. These agents are called Negotiators and they are some of the top-performing real estate agents in the country.

The reality series gives viewers a behind-closed-doors look at the everyday lives of Negotiators as they get their clients the best deals possible. The featured real estate agents are handpicked by the show’s producers because of their leading expertise, experience, and success in their local market.

The two-part episode titled “Riding The Wave” featuring Keith St. Onge reveals the multiple challenges he has to overcome in order to ensure that his client’s real estate transactions don’t fall through the cracks.

The synopsis for the episode reads: The waves of real estate are ever-changing, unpredictable, and at times chaotic. The trick is to get on top of the waves to ride the trends as they come. For Negotiator and barefoot water skier Keith St. Onge, riding waves is what he does best.

“To become a world champion, you need dedication and commitment and that’s what I give to my clients.” – Keith St. Onge

Keith St. Onge may be well-known for his achievements in barefoot water skiing and real estate, but Keith’s story hails from humble beginnings. The former barefoot water skier spent his childhood in the small town of Berlin, New Hampshire. Known for having harsh winters, Keith wasn’t introduced to barefoot water skiing until he was 9yrs old when he was taught by barefoot water skiing champion Mike Siegel.

His first experience barefoot water skiing gave birth to a new passion and by the age of thirteen, he made a commitment to become a world champion barefoot water skier as well as to eventually create his own ski school. Shortly after high school, Keith moved to Florida where he started a ski school and went on to become one of the most influential athletes in extreme sports.

Keith won fourteen world championships, nineteen national titles, and has set eleven world records in his over 15 year long career. It wasn’t until his late thirties that Keith would start thinking about retirement and looked to real estate as another avenue to generate income. Although Keith St. Onge may be retired from Barefoot skiing competitions, he still finds innovative ways to break new records.

Tune in to The Negotiators on Friday, May 27th, and June 10th to see part one and part two of Keith St. Onge’s featured episode, “Riding The Wave”, streaming for free exclusively on Reveel.

 

Reveel’s ‘The Negotiators’ Series Takes a Closer Look at Jim Morrison’s Childhood Home

It’s not every day that you get to see the childhood home of early rock and roll legend, Jim Morrison. It’s even less often that you get a tour of the inside of that home, but on April 29th, you will be able to do just that from the comfort of your own home thanks to Reveel, a Miami-based entertainment streaming service.

Jim Morrison may have gone on to be one of the most legendary rock and roll artists of all time, but he started out living life in a modest home in Melbourne, Florida. It was in this unassuming Melbourne house where Morrison would have his diapers changed, likely learned how to crawl, and probably unwittingly got to listen to his first record.

Reveel’s original real estate reality series The Negotiators will feature Morrison’s childhood home in the third episode of the second season, giving viewers the first public video tour of the inside of the property. The episode will also tell the phenomenal story of how agent Steve Gordon won out the coveted listing against multiple other agents and decided to put the house on the market for $2.5 million.

The high price may seem like a big ask, but agent Steve Gordon, founder of White Sands Real Estate Solutions, is confident that the birth home of Jim Morrison will sell for the seven-figure valuation.

“This home in my opinion is going to sell to a super fan. Somebody who has a considerable amount of money,” – Steve Gordon

Jim Morrison's Childhood HomeJim Morrison’s Childhood Home in Melbourne, Florida

The three-bedroom wood-frame house, where “Mr. Mojo Risin” spent his first months, went on the market in February, and while no one has put in an offer yet, Gordon has gotten more than a dozen inquiries about the house from as far as California to Europe.

“This is so much more than just a home. There’s a lineage here, there’s a story that lives within these walls,’’ William Cheverie, president of Reveel Entertainment.

The story is that of Steve and Clara Morrison and their son, James Douglas Morrison, who would one day become the “Lizard King.” In late 1943, Steve and his wife Clara lived in a small bungalow in Melbourne, Florida.

Steve was receiving flight training at a nearby naval station – now Melbourne Orlando International Airport and Clara was pregnant with a particularly notable baby boy. On December 8th, 1943, Clara gave birth and named the baby boy James Douglas Morrison.

Steve, Clara, and Jim’s house in Melbourne would be theirs for another six months until Steve was sent off to fight in World War II. Clara took Jim to live in Clearwater, Florida until Steve returned stateside in 1946.

Jim’s early years were transient due to his father being a Navy officer who moved from one base to the next. It wasn’t until Jim’s teens that the Morrison family settled down in Alexandria, Virginia.

Jim went to UCLA for his college education, where he received an undergraduate degree in the university’s film program within the Theater Arts department. After graduating from UCLA in 1965, it was by chance that Jim would meet Ray Manzarek on Venice Beach months later.

The two young men were familiar with each other as fellow UCLA students but they connected on a different level when they discovered their shared love of poetry and music. From this coincidental meeting, a rock and roll band called The Doors was born.

The Doors quickly became a national sensation and one of the most controversial rock bands of their era. With Morrison’s death in 1971, the singer became immortalized as one of the most influential frontmen of any rock band in the twentieth century.

You could say the rest is history, but the legacy of Jim Morrison remains as relevant today as it did fifty years ago. To this day, devoted fans of Morrison visit his gravesite in Paris along with many other Morrison-related sites around America, including the Melbourne house where it all began.

“What you’ll see, if you start to Google or Youtube search for this house in Melbourne, is that fans are constantly going by the house and taking videos and posting them on social media,’’ – Gordon

The story of Jim Morrison and The Doors still resonates with people today and while most people won’t be able to consider the offer to buy Morrison’s childhood home for $2.5 million, agent Steve Gordon isn’t looking for just anybody.

“My goal in listing this house was not to find everyone. It was to find the one, the one person that was the right fan with the right amount of money and wanted to be able to say, ‘I own the house that Jim Morrison was born in.’’’ – Gordon

If you’re a fan of The Doors, Jim Morrison, or just rock and roll history in general, tune into The Negotiators on April 29th for your chance to see the inside of one of rock and roll’s most famous homes.
